Year 5 Cricket

10th Jun 2019

Eight Year 5 children represented the school in a cricket tournament against five other local schools.  This was the first cricket tournament we played in and the team played well together.  They had to learn quickly to bowl overarm as every team member had to bowl an over of six balls.  Our first match was against St Mary’s and we lost this match 188 to 220.  Our second match was against The Meadows and we scored 228 in this match, unfortunately The Meadows scored 249.  The team worked really well together and showed excellent sportsmanship.  Renaya was awarded the ‘Captain’s Choice’ for her excellent bowling and catching, Basil was awarded the ‘Coach’s Choice’ for his excellent captaincy.  Well done to the whole team. We can’t wait til the next match!
